As the landscape of streaming services continues to change, many platforms have been looking to add and diversify their content offerings while also keeping costs down for consumers. One way to do this is for live TV streaming services to add free ad-supported TV (FAST) channels to their traditional offerings of broadcast and cable networks. One of the services that has begun to embrace this type of low-cost content additions is the generally sports-focused live streamer fuboTV.
Though the service grew to 1.23 million North American subscribers in the third quarter of 2022 thanks to the return of professional and college football, Fubo is still looking to add on-brand channels to keep sports fans engaged once their favorite team’s season is over.
So, this week, fuboTV added a handful of channels to its various packages at no extra cost. The channels primarily focus on unique sports and outdoor living and can be found across three different Fubo subscription packages.
